ZUG, SWITZERLAND: Foster Wheeler’s Global Engineering and Construction Group subsidiary has signed a technical services agreement with OJSC Khabarovsk Oil Processing Refinery to provide construction management services for the hydroprocessing project at the refinery in Russia’s Far East.

The objective of the project is to produce more higher-value, lighter products. The complex includes a hydrocracker, hydrotreater, hydrogen unit, amine regeneration unit, sour water stripper, sulfur recovery unit, vapor recovery unit, waste water treatment unit, ground flare, tank farm and pump houses. The hydrogen plant is based on Foster Wheeler’s proprietary Terrace Wall steam methane reforming technology.

We executed the front-end engineering design for the entire hydroprocessing complex, basic design for the hydrogen production facility, design and supply of the steam reformers for the hydrogen plant, and have been providing on-going project management consultancy services as the project progressed into the engineering, procurement and construction phases,” said Umberto della Sala, President and Chief Operating Officer, Foster Wheeler AG.
